Hubby leaves the 8th of August until the 26th of Sept.  Then leaves again in March to go to NTC, then in Sept he is deploying. (give or take)

I will be working full time, going to school full time and taking care of the kids and taking them to all their appts, on top of all my appointments.  Tristan goes to speech two times a week now, danny has his therapy, then play group therapy.  Along with his other appts. 

Needless to say I need some happy pills AND I will be skinny when hubby comes home! lol

Oh wow, that's a lot on your plate! Do you have any family around to help out and keep you company?

That is a ton going on!  Maybe you can hire a part-time nanny while he's deployed?  She can have other tasks besides just helping you with the kids like light housework.

Yikes!!! How can you do all of that? Are there other military wives close who could help you out?

She moved away from family.  I think it was over a year ago this past February or March.  Her family is very close to my area and I think her drive back home is 7hrs or so.
I'm sure she'll come back and tell us her plans ;)

Well funny enough, my sister's husband got stationed here. lol. Although I do not rely on her.  She is always asking me to watch her kids already. smh. She has TWO and can not take them to appts with her because they run wild. 

I do not trust many people with my kids, so I will be solo. lol.  It shouldn't be too bad since the kids will be in school all day.  Plus, I am getting anxiety meds next week so I should be fine. lol. (I really do have anxiety) My kids are old enough to where they know how to behave. Just like yesterday at the appt Danny was getting upset and all I had to do was say his name and look at him.  Honestly the kids are pretty good when Daddy is gone. I just do not have time to put them in extra activities like I wanted to. ):

Well I was going to say that's wonderful, lol.  Doesn't sound like she will be helpful but it doesn't sound like you really need it.  You are going to be so busy then.
